S1.Ans. (a)
Sol. Planktons are passively floating in upper water, nektons are actively swimming while benthos lead sedentary life upon the sea bottom. Planktons are producers and are present in large number.

S2.Ans. (a)
Sol. The behavior of energy in ecosystem can be termed energy flow due to unidirectional flow of energy, Flow of energy is only in one direction i.e., from solar radiation —> producers —> herbivorous —> carnivores. This energy cannot pass in the reverse direction.

S3.Ans. (d)
Sol. In Bhopal, the killer gas methyl isocyanate (MIC) was leaked into air from a chemical plant killing more than 2,000 people; many of the people are still suffering from various diseases and defects of eye.

S4.Ans. (b)
Sol.  The ability to maintain a steady state within constantly changing environment is essential for the survival of living systems. The maintenance of a constant internal environment is called homeostasis.

S5.Ans. (b)
Sol. The dead organic matter of plant or animal is called as detritus. Many animals such as protozoan’s, nematodes, insects etc. depend on detritus and hence they are called as detrivores.

S6.Ans. (d)
Sol. Soil fertility is the characteristic of soil that supports abundant plant life. In particular the term is used to describe agricultural and garden soil.

S7.Ans. (b)
Sol. River water deposit alluvial soil. Alluvial soils are transported by water.

S8.Ans. (d)
Ans. Mercury gets changed to water soluble dim ethyl mercury which undergoes bio magnifications. Eating poisoned animals causes deformity known as minamata disease which is characterized by diarrhea, hemolysis, impairment of various senses, numbness of lips, tongue, limbs, deafness, blurring of vision, mental derangement, meningitis and death.

S9.Ans. (a)
Sol.  Desertification means a process of spread of desert that occurs due to degradation of environment; cutting of trees, soil erosion etc. It can be natural or manmade. The main causes for desertification are over cultivation of poor soils, over grazing by animals, excessive cutting of fuel wood and inappropriate irrigation practices resulting in salinization. Among them overgrazing is the most important factor as it causes maximum effect.

S10.Ans. (d)
Sol. Tropical shrubs or thorn forests are found in places where moisture conditions are intermediate between desert and savanna on one hand and seasonal or rain forests on the other hand.
